On being informed about the incident, a police team rushed to the spot and recovered the bodies, Sub-divisional police officer (Seraikela) Avinash Kumar said.

The Maoists also left hand-written posters accusing the victims of being police informers and collecting levy in their name, he said.

While the woman was a resident of that village, the identity of the male victim was yet to be ascertained, Kumar said.

A search operation has been launched to track down the ultras, he said.
